Petroda Oil and Gas Corrects SPCC Compliance

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has fined Petroda Oil and Gas of Duncan, Okla., $1,300 for violating federal Spill Prevention, Control and Countermeasure (SPCC) regulations outlined under the Clean Water Act., according to a March 26 press release.

A federal inspection of an oil production facility located on Eighth Street, Duncan, Stephens County, Okla., on Dec. 17, 2008, found inspections and tests required by SPCC regulations were not in accordance with written procedures developed for the facility, no designated personnel accountable for spill prevention, and spill prevention briefings were not scheduled and conducted periodically.

The inspection also revealed personnel working at the site had no training in several areas, including general facility operations, operations and maintenance of equipment to prevent discharges, discharge procedure protocols, and applicable pollution control laws, rules, and regulations. As part of an expedited settlement agreement, the facility has provided certification that all identified deficiencies have been corrected.
